I also read the article, and nowhere does he say "don't expect too much"
as you have quoted (and as it is in the subject). The article just says
(from the article)
Stating that the attack lacked experience, Tendulkar pleaded with the
critics not to expect ``miracles."He remarked ``the bowlers lack
experience and need 12 to 15 months to prove themselves. We have a set
of inexperienced bowlers barring Rajesh (Chauhan) and to some extent
Abey (Kuruvilla). We can't help if someone is injured. We must give them
time to recover,''said Tendulkar in obvious reference to Javagal Srinath
and Venkatesh Prasad.
This does not appear pessimistic to me. It looks more like a fair
assessment of the team's strengths and weaknesses.
